The same procedures as described in ATACPD05500 should be followed.

Once you have completed you action, the yellow exportation voucher must be detached from the carnet and sent immediately to the office named in Box H(c) of the voucher.

If any evidence exists to raise doubts over the authenticity of the carnet or if it appears that any unauthorised amendments have been made, refuse to sign the carnet until you have contacted either the issuing office or the office named in Box H(c) of the yellow exportation voucher. Only when you have received confirmation that the carnet is valid may you release the goods.

Once you have completed your checks and certified the carnet, you should return the carnet to the holder or representative.
